8 tips to help you get gorgeous glowing skin

Your skin is the first layer of your immune system, serving as a shield between you and the legions of germs in your surroundings. To help protect and keep it moisturized, which helps enhance the protective abilities of skin, here are eight handy tips.

1. Change moisturizer with the seasons

Change your moisturizer every time the season changes. Why? Simply put:

  • Your skin needs more moisture in winter than summer. So when it’s time to wear a heavier sweater, it’s also time to buy a heavier moisturizer.

As a rule of thumb, when you swap your sweater for a T-shirt, switch to a lighter moisturizer as well.

2. Avoid certain skin destroyers

“Skin destroyers” sounds harsh, but with time certain things can ravage the appearance of skin. So what are these enemies of a soft, youthful-looking complexion? Smoking, tanning salons and sunbathing.

  • Many doctors agree that all three will age your skin prematurely.

3. Men: don’t be afraid of moisturizers

It’s important for men to recognize that skin-preserving products, such as cleansers and moisturizers, aren’t just for women.

  • Men need skincare just as much as their partners and sisters.
  • To help prevent wrinkles and reduce the risk of developing skin cancer, use a daily moisturizer containing a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.
  • Guys should also use a gentle exfoliant every week and a nighttime moisturizer.

4. Limit your alcohol intake

Although it’s okay to raise a toast, don’t overdo the alcohol. Limit yourself to one glass of wine or one alcoholic drink per meal or “celebration.”

  • Overindulging in alcohol can enlarge the blood vessels near the surface of your facial skin, which may result in redness and “rougher” looking skin.

5. De-shine your face

Some people have naturally oilier skin than others, which acts as a dirt and dust magnet. In turn, there’s a tendency towards developing acne when the grime isn’t removed.
